What's your opinion? [Oct. 25th, 2009|06:19 am]

I imagine in the end gay/lesbian weddings will outlast hetro ones.

The reason?

With hetro marriages, there's the biological ticking clock... women want to settle down with a guy she can have a family with. Some of these women 'settle' for a person they don't really get on with as in their 30's they're loosing the chance for a family.

7 to 10 years later they can't put up with their last minute forced decision any longer, and get a divorce.

Gey and lesbian couples don't have the biological clock forcing them into picking a partner.

Divorce Rate - Remember that men lose out in most of these. [Oct. 25th, 2009|06:21 am]

What is the current divorce rate in America?

It is frequently reported that the divorce rate in America is 50%. This data is not accurately correct, however, it is reasonably close to actual. The Americans for Divorce Reform estimates that "Probably, 40 or possibly even 50 percent of marriages will end in divorce if current trends continue.", which is actually a projection.

"50% of all marriages in the America end in divorce."

The above statement about the divorce rate in America hides all the details about distribution, however.

The divorce rate in America for first marriage, vs second or third marriage

50% percent of first marriages, 67% of second and 74% of third marriages end in divorce, according to Jennifer Baker of the Forest Institute of Professional Psychology in Springfield, Missouri.”

According to enrichment journal on the divorce rate in America:
The divorce rate in America for first marriage is 41%
The divorce rate in America for second marriage is 60%
The divorce rate in America for third marriage is 73%

The divorce rate in America for childless couples and couples with children

According to discovery channel, couples with children have a slightly lower rate of divorce than childless couples.

Sociologists believe that childlessness is also a common cause of divorce. The absence of children leads to loneliness and weariness and even in the United States, at least 66 per cent of all divorced couples are childless.

In the 60's we all thought we'd be working a 3 hour day, what happened? [Oct. 25th, 2009|06:05 pm]

"We could easily feed the world, everyone could work less, etc. But then the super rich would not exist.

What people don't realize is that most of society is basically working hard and giving all their possessions to the super rich. Very few people would have any idea what i'm talking about."
